MIT Invitational Recap

xfaus3pedvya0psl

Lost in the past weekend of #Surprise(s) and Small College Nationals was the MIT Invitational. While this is not a new tournament, it might as well have been this fall. Last year, MIT hosted teams like BU, Dartmouth, and Harvard for this tournament, but this year it was STACKED with DIII talent. 8 teams made…

ITA Oracle Cup (Small College Nationals) Picks!

SURPRISE!

Prediction time, boys and girls. Everybody’s favorite chance to point at us and laugh after our picks go horribly awry. You can see that there’s a pretty even split towards the top of the singles picks, with 4 of the 8 contestants/teams being picked to win by different writers in both the singles and the…

ITA Oracle Cup (Small College Nationals) Preview

SURPRISE!

SMALL COLLEGE NATIONALS SINGLES PREVIEW Today, there’s this thing called Small College Nationals happening at 10:30AM PT from somewhere in Arizona. Welcome to the desert, folks. Let’s hope that this is real life and not an elaborate theme park for rich people (Westworld Reference! Hit me up on twitter to discuss the newest HBO show,…

Wallach Recap

To the window, to the Wallach

Another week, another NE tournament to recap. And it only gets better from here, with next weekend consisting of Small College Nationals and the revamped MIT tournament, which has very quickly become the best fall tournament outside of the ITA. Last weekend seven teams found their way up to Bates for the Wallach Invitational. While…

Northeast ITA Recap and Report Card

Howdy, all.  I’m back with a recap of last weekend’s Northeast ITA, with some help from good ol’ RegionalASouth.  I’ll keep this intro quick, but let me first give a shoutout to Kai Yuen Leung for taking care of business and winning the tournament in fairly uneventful fashion, proving he’ll be one of the top…

NE ITA RECAP

Another year, another ITA singles champ for Coach Hansen

Another New England ITA, another showcase of the best depth the country has to offer. I’ll save the ramblings for the recap itself, but congrats to both Lubomir Cuba and Kyle Wolfe/Jerry Jiang on taking home the hardware. Rather than go through the actual event piece by piece, D3Regional and I are going to go through…

Northeast ITA Preview

I can’t remember an ITA quite like this year’s Northeast tournament.  Often considered one of the weaker ITAs (a fair assessment), this tournament has recently gone one of three ways: Skidmore dominates, Heinrich dominates, or someone comes out of nowhere to make a run (anyone remember when Drew won the doubles a few years ago?).…

New England ITA Preview

WIIIIIIILLLLIIIIIIIIAAAAAMMMSSSSS

Happy ITA weekend, boys and girls. The New England ITA is the best thing that happens during the fall season in my 100% biased opinion. The amount of talent at this ITA is bordering on dangerous, and that’s without some of the region’s top players! The #1 player in the region and player generally thought to…
